Yeah, depends on what recipe it is and how many egg yolks etc. For example, I modified a shortbread recipe that called for 1 egg yolk by adding in a bit of EnerG Egg replacer with a tsp. each of of coconut oil and water. Worked fine.

I guess I might ask this also- what replaces an egg yolk in a custard? My husbands favorite pie is the Torta Della Nonna and I want to attempt to veganize it but it looks like it might be challenging.
I post these questions here because I get conflicting substitutions off a google search.

IDK- its more dairy and egg than not. It might not come together.

yum i luv pinwheel cookies.
the yolk doesn't do much but bind in this recipe so ener-g would be fine, cornstarch or tapioca starch would work too (mixed with some water or plant milk)

For recipes like this i usually just look for a vegan version. here is one that looks pretty good: http://magiedichicca66.wordpress.com...a-della-nonna/ (the website is easily translated in google)

Vegan Torta Della Nonna recipe in Italian with metric measurements if you don't mind using the google translator and converting measurements: http://www.veganblog.it/2010/10/22/torta-della-nonna/

A couple vegan custard recipes from vegweb to give you more custard veganizing ideas: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=6229.0

Personally, I'd probably use silken tofu and I believe you can use agar-agar powder to thicken/gelatinize things. Good luck!

Edit: I'm a slow poster.
